This past week the first Symfony conference in the United States took place in the beautiful city of San Francisco. With over 100 participants and 15 talks, the event was a really good step towards growing the Symfony community in the US. Here are some highlights of the entire week:

  • During Saturday and Sunday around 15 to 20 people joined the Hackdays. Some people worked on patches, others on documentation and a good number got introduced to Symfony2 for the first time.
  • Sensio announced the opening of an office in San Francisco to provide training and consulting services to a growing number of Symfony users. The office will be lead by Dustin Whittle.
  • During the Paris edition in early March, the first release candidate will be made public. This means that the API of Symfony2 will go stable and no BC changes will be made. If you are waiting to start your Symfony2 application, this is what you should be waiting for.
  • You can see a comment of talks for Day 1 and Day 2 in the Symfony official blog where you can find all the slides.
  • Tom Boutell from P’unk Ave did a great job with liveblogging some of the talks, if you could not attend, this is a must read.
  • If you attended the conference, make sure to leave feedback in

The Paris version of Symfony Live is only 3 weeks away, it is not too late to register, and we will be present as well. Please stop by and say hi and get your t-shirt. If you don’t have tickets for Paris, we have an extra ticket to give away for the first client who opens a ticket and asks for it. To be eligible to win you must already be a ServerGrove client for over a week.
